Cataloging: Columbus Day Weekend 2013

Don't get me wrong--we don't take Columbus Day off at Barnard, nor do I want to honor Cristofero Colombo in any way. It's just a different thing to say than Zine Cataloging Report: 10/11/13. This will be a half day's worth of zine cataloging since I spent a few hours today at a radical archives working group meeting organized by Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani

Cover photo from The Cool Customer blog. 

It saddens me that many zine writers still feel the need to explain that feminism ≠ man-hating. That's not a criticism of Judith, 17 at the time of publication; it's a criticism of reality.
